Current Tour: The City Mouse & The Country Mouse

About the Show: Anastasia, a likably pretentious, socialite City Mouse (played by Julie Price), has been invited by her silly “good ol’ gal” country cousin, Cindy Lou (played by April Cochran) to pay her a visit. But once she does, she has a run-in with Cindy Lou’s neighbor – a Dog! Anastasia convinces Cindy Lou to come back with her to the “safety” of the city… where even more disasters strike! A Dog, a rapping Alley Cat and a mysterious Prairie Scout on a quest for a sales merit badge (all played by Anna Johnston) add to the pandemonium which ends with the realization that while characters may be very different, they can still appreciate and care for each other. Fast paced action, audience participation and a meaningful theme makes THE CITY MOUSE AND THE COUNTRY MOUSE perfect for preschool through 3rd grade audiences!
